I recently had some major problems with my computer running Windows ME and now have 2 error messages that come up all the time when I start up my computer. I wondered if somebody could please help me find a way to get rid of these as I am not great with things like this. They are as follows,

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WINUP2DATE.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\CFGMGR51.DLL

Any help would be much appriciated, thank you, Grover.

Hi, the exact error messages are X RUNDLL
Then it says THE SYSTEM CANNOT FIND THE FILE SPECIFIED

and it comes up with these 2 errors C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WINUP2DATE.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\CFGMGR51.DLL

I then have to click ok to x these 2 boxes out of my main icon screen.

Any help would be great, thanks Grover

Both of the files mentioned are Spyware related.

autoupdate    WINUP2DATE.DLL,SHStart  XUnidentified adware - detected by Panda antivirus as Trj/Clicker.CY

cfgmgr51.dll    cfgmgr51  X A bookedspace malware variant. It is started with this command: RunDLL32.EXE C:\WINNT\cfgmgr51.dll,DllRun


I would recommend that you try to clean your system up with a couple of anti-spyware/malware cleaners:
Please download Spybot Search & Destroy and AdAware.

Follow the instructions found in the tutorials below:

Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

Let us know how you make out with your scans.

Hi, thankyou for the reply I ran both adaware and spybot and it got rid of 1 error but I am still getting c:\windows\system\winup2date.dll as an error when I start up my computer. I also tried spy sweeper trial and AVG 7.0 trial version to get rid of this but it did not do so. Any help would be great, thanks Grover

Maybe you could also run CHKDSK, check your fragmentation levels/ defrag to see if this could be a HD problem.
